lentil soup -- gluten free + dairy free

what a wonderful weekend - i got to see good friends friday night, hit up copper mountain on saturday, saw family sat night then baked/took the dog on a nice long walk yesterday. i experimented with making scone this weekend - however i've not nailed down a good recipe at this point. i plan to tweak it this week - so, stay tuned. you should be seeing a post about them soon.

i've been making lentil soup on a weekly basis since thanksgiving. while i was back in boston my best girl liz reintroduced me to lentils. i crave them now. i make a huge pot of lentil soup every weekend and bring it to work a few times a week for lunch. to change things up - i sometimes eat this on top of steamed brown rice with a helping of salsa. this is a great soup to use for a detox too - super duper healthy.



delicious fiber

lentil soup
  • 1/2 c green lentils - picked over
  • 1/2 c pink lentils - picked over
